My name is Lauren Cox, and I have been with the Wild Dunes Swim Team for over 14 years. I grew up swimming for Wild Dunes, and later with Ashley Hall High School. I have been a junior coach with Wild Dunes and have taught private swim lessons with members of the team for the past few years. For the past three years, I worked as an Ocean Rescue Lifeguard for Isle of Palms County Park, and am EMR, CPR and BLS certified.
I am currently a student at the University of Virginia, and am pursuing a major in Global Public Health on a pre-medical track. I also swim for the UVA club swim team.
While this is my first year as a head coach, I will be working closely with our previous coach Nick Tipling to make this transition as smooth as possible, and to continue the tremendous growth and progress we have made as a team. I'm so excited to start this summer working with a team that I have seen grow and change so much over the past decade, and I can’t wait to start off our season!
